he wouldn't kill anakin.
Kenobi's a Jedi. He won't kill an unarmed opponent.

I'd think that Skywalker was arrogant till the end.
He wouldn't want Kenobi to help him.
It'd bring him lightyears of shame.

Kenobi walked away.
Feeling gutted.
There's nothing he could do he thinks.

And Sidious is just around the corner.
Wouldn't want to face him.

The real reason is that there is continuity to Episode IV

Matt Stover offers 3 reasons in the ROTS novel:
Although it would been merciful to finish off Anakin,

1) Obi-Wan decided to leave Anakin's fate to the will of the Force. Besides, he did'nt want to murder a helpless man too.
2) Obi-Wan sensed Palpatine fast approaching, and realised there's no time to waste climbing down the slope to Anakin.
3) Obi-Wan wanted to do one last thing for Anakin, in honour to his memory; to save Padme.

A simpler explanation frm George Lucas is that Obi-Wan thought Anakin had no chance of surviving. When he left Anakin, the last image he had was that of a man writhing in flames

Why didn't Anakin burn into ashes? ... he's so near to the edge of volcano river and is already on fire ... :roll:
